What to Expect After Hiring an Attorney for a case involving Children

Posted by Gordon Shayne | Apr 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

Now that you have hired a Florida Attorney...

You should expect your attorney to be there for you when you need them the most, throughout your ENTIRE case

This is absolutely critical, especially in those cases where children are involved. You must have a lawyer who has extensive experience within the court system. 

  • This is not a time when you want to skimp on cost.
  • This is when you want to get the best lawyer that you can.

Most people who come to see me tell me that they've never had any experience with the legal system and that they're scared to death of what's going to happen and what the outcome is going to be.

People tend to feel quite uncertain during these times

There's a lot of uncertainties.

  • What's going to happen with child support?
  • What's going to happen with visitation?
  • What's going to happen with the holidays?
  • How will I afford to support my children?

Many people are scared and confused and can let their emotions really get the better of them.  This is when I sit down with you and together, we begin to map out a legal strategy.  In doing so, you will feel more settled and you will have a strong sense of direction. 

A legal strategy is where the attorney and client discuss how to get from point A to point Z. Just because the the client may have an immediate need to accomplish and bring to a close the issues surrounding their case, it does not mean that the court works within their time frame. Explaining the process, the time needed to collect data, financial documents, etc. will give you, the client, the framework for how your case will get done, and get done the right way!

Let's face it, you need a great attorney, you need someone who has been involved in all areas of family law, you need the person with over 35 years of experience who knows how to get the job done.
